SABA V - CALL FOR ART DONATIONS
IT’S SABA TIME! Take advantage of this great opportunity to showcase your work in front of collectors in an art museum setting and join the emerging, established, and community artists supporting The Delaware Contemporary. Last year, we received 352 pieces of artwork from exhibiting artists, incredibly talented community artists, national artists from as far as Seattle, international artists from places like Amsterdam and China, our wonderful board members, The Delaware Contemporary studio artists, and our dedicated staff. Help us exceed that number for SABA V! The first 50 artists to submit artwork will be eligible to win two General Admission tickets.
Each donation must be a 6x6 inch (15cm) square piece of wall art. No other sizes or free-standing sculpture will be accepted.
Please sign only on the back of the work for anonymous exhibition. Artists may enter works in any 2D or 3D medium. Charcoal or pastel must be fixed. Smaller works on paper may be mounted to a 6x6 inch card stock or board. Clay or metal work thicker than 1/4 inch must have holes to accommodate pins/nails. There is no limit to the number of works an artist may enter. All entries that meet the specifications will be accepted, however The Delaware Contemporary reserves the right to jury-out work. Entries will not be returned, but artists retain copyrights. There is no entry fee.

The first person to buy a ticket will be the first person to choose their piece of art, and so on. The general admission portion of the event will be the usual elbow knocking, art grabbing frenzie. STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS!

General admission presale tickets: $25, ENDS October 25th - regular price: $30, door price: $35
